    All I can say is that God knows what He is doing. I was getting really down and depressed after not getting hired in the district that I did my student teaching in. Everyone thought for sure I would be hired. Unfortunately I wasn't "connected" to the right people and did not get hired. But now I know that was not God's plan for me. I applied to other districts and received a call last week from a principal in a different county (the county where my husband works- he has been driving for 2 hours one way for a year). The interview lasted over an hour and at the end she asked me if I would accept the job. The greatest advice I can give is to have faith and don't give up. Good luck to all of you!

    Glad to hear you found a job near where your husband works! How nice if you can move to the area!

    And I agree, if you feel teaching is truly for you---keep applying. It might not happen this year, but you just never know when it will.

    I'm feeling really down, and after reading what you wrote I totally agree. Thanks for giving me some hope again! I'm getting married and my fiancé lives 1 hour away. I left my job so we could be together and went on interview in his district on Tuesday. Still haven't heard anything back yet, but principal says I should hear by early next week. I'm losing hope because I think if I got it I would know sooner. I just want to know!

    LuvKinder,
    I know how you feel about just wanting to know. If you don't get the job that you interviewed for then you know that it was not meant to be. Try to keep your head up and believe that God truly knows what school and which kids needs you the most!
    I wish you lots of luck!
